Just an interesting question that I thought of today. I was looking through websites (as well as my warranty manuals) and noticed that SWR, for example, only offers a 2 year warranty on it's professional series (1 year for workingman's series). Peavey offers a 3 year warranty. I thought that I read somewhere that Eden only offers either a one or two year warranty. Now here's the kicker, both of my Crate amps come with a 5 year warranty, and it's transferrable at that (though I think that some of the above are also transferrable). Why is this? Why does my cheap Crate come with a lot better warranty than an expensive, professional SWR? Sure, some might say it's because the Crate will need it. But use common sense, you don't buy a cheap product to get a good warranty - manufacturers know this and thus a cheaper product usually has a lesser warranty. The opposite is true for higher quality products, so why isn't SWR's warranty (for example) like 5 or 7 years or something? Just an observation that I had and wondered what other people think about it.
